NVMM

The newly opened National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus is the only place where the stories of our veterans, their families and the Fallen – across all branches of service and all eras of conflict – are told together. At more than 50,000 sq. ft., the facility offers space for gatherings, ceremonies, celebrations and public events; opportunities for reflection in the Memorial Grove and Memorial Room; and exhibition galleries, both rotating and permanent, to learn more about the experiences of the brave men and women who serve and have served.

LEGOLAND

The new 36,000-sq.-ft. LEGOLAND Discovery Center at Easton is billed as the ultimate indoor LEGO playground and includes two rides, 10 LEGO build and play zones, a 4D cinema and more to make it a great stop for groups with kids or an exciting addition to a family reunion itinerary.

COSI

Through a unique and groundbreaking relationship with the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH), COSI now features a permanent, 22,000-sq.-ft. AMNH Dinosaur Gallery, and an AMNH Special Exhibition Gallery. Beginning Feb. 2019, the newest rotating exhibit, Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids: Mythic Creatures, will explore the relationship between nature and legend.

Franklin Park Convservatory

Dale Chihuly’s vibrant glass artwork makes a lasting impression on all who view it. Franklin Park  Conservatory and Botanical Gardens features the world’s largest collection of Chihuly in a botanical garden. The artwork has been on display since 2003, but will be completely reimagined in 2019 to include unique and never before seen installations reflective of Chihuly’s new work.
